One pack of these tablets is enough for 30 liters, or about 8 gallons of water. Rationed wisely, that's enough for one person for about a week. Not bad for 15 bucks. Full disclosure, my recent purchase had 40 tablets in a sealed case labeled 30. Is this intentional or just a happy coincidence? Don't know, don't care. Tested one tablet for flavor and its slightly chemical but not unsavory. Better than most iodine-based purification tabs on the market or that I used in the Army. I only waited about 2 hours or so before I had a sip though, and everything I've read is that the flavor mellows with more time. Besides, its nothing that a pack of Crystal Light can't fix.
Katadyn is the Cadillac of the water-purification market and their products are always top-notch. It may seem pricey to drop so much on purification tabs, but come crunch-time, you'll be glad you have them.
Instructions are a little confusing as they contradict themselves on one issue -- the instructions state not for cryptosporidium, but also state that standing time for cryptosporidium is 4 hours. ("Destroys viruses and bacteria in 15 min., Giardia in 30 min. and Cryptosporidium in 4 hrs.").
Only once did I sense any odor from the treatment and we suspect we might have caused it by accidentally treating that liter of water two times. No discoloration of water (perhaps our biggest complaint about iodine tx), easy to use, clear instructions (save the one discrepancy), easy-to-use packaging, extremely lightweight, and very compact. What's not to love?
I think Micropur does leave a slight taste, but nothing like the taint of iodine.
Tablets have limitations, of course. For example, if you want to drink immediately, you can't. You have to pace yourself. If you want to fill up a 1.5 liter container, you have to do some improvising. But if you just want to have a very light, dependable, non-cloggable solution to on-the-trail hydration, Micropur is great.
